    Hi So I've been thinking of doing this course at Greenwich next year. I am aware that it is not in the highest of places on league tables and is not a uni that people think of first to do their studies. However, the website's description of this course has impressed me. I'm just a little unsure whether to put it down because people seem to say loads of bad stuff about it :eek3:

    Could people who have been there, or know people who have been there, please give me an insight on what the uni is actually like. I just ask one thing... please can you give me reasons for why you have the opinion that you do!!! Thanks

    I haven't done the French option, but I'm doing the primary PGCE here. Personally, I think the university is really good for primary teaching. League tables should be taken with a pinch of salt - the most important thing is your school experience, as it won't matter where you've done your PGCE when you're looking for jobs. The tutors are really good and supportive and being in London means you get a varied school experience, to prepare you for teaching. I would suggest you do your PGCE in an area you are wanting to get a job in, as it will mean you know the area and the schools better, as well as being easier to go to interviews and look around schools

    If you've got some more specific questions, I'll gladly answer them

    Thanks xKTx, that's really helpful! How did you find the application process to Greenwich? Also, what experience did you have on application? Thank you for your help

    If anyone else would like to share their views about Greenwich, good or bad, I would love to hear them!

    The application process was fine, altho Greenwich admin in general isn't great :p: The school of education is good tho. I had two terms volunteering in a dsylexia unit for one day a week, along with a year working as a TA (altho when I applied it was only a couple of months)
